I'm not sure if this should be here, but anyway... Using the standard J2EE server and validator, I get problems when I try to validate JARs if they access classes not in the same JAR i.e. a simple class in another EJB's jar - although I can still deploy succesfully! Also, when validating JARs that access other EJB's causes failures - yet still it deploys succesfully. Any tips perhaps?
